The blue object is just a convenience for wiring two pins together.  You can wire the center pin to the pin on the side you need it wired to, and you'll do just fine.  It's just that, when you want to change things, it's a whole lot easier to pick up the blue piece and move it to the next location than it is to remove your wire and wrap it around the new pin you want it connected to.

Hi Khaledrmse, 

I would look at the other blue jumpers on the board and see if there is one that does not need to be set based on your design and use that one.

thank you,

Jon

Hello,

Here is what the reference manual says:

PS/2 Port

The 6-pin mini-DIN connector can accommodate a PS/2 mouse or keyboard. Most PS/2 devices can operate from a 3.3V supply, but older devices may require a 5VDC supply. A 3-pin jumper on the immediately adjacent to the PS/2 connector selects whether regulated 3.3V or the main input power bus voltage (VU) is supplied to the PS/2 connector. To send 5V to the PS/2 connector, set the PS2 power jumper to VU (the main input power bus), and ensure the board is powered from USB or a 5VDC wall-plug supply. To send 3.3V to the connector, set the jumper to 3.3V.
